Blackboard: Why would I Use Audio/Image/Video?
A quick tutorial on why creating an audio/image/video is better to use than a content file
Why would I Use Audio/Image/Video?
Files within Blackboard upload differently depending on what tool it is that you use to upload it. For instance, an audio file if it is uploaded through the method of:
Build Content >> File
This will result in a file being placed in that area much like a Word document would. If the user clicked on it, it would download. However if you were to use the specific “Audio” option the file would read as a piece of audio. Blackboard would take that information and generate you a way to play that audio file while in Blackboard. That way the user who wants to listen to it, would be able to play it within their Blackboard course.
The same goes for video and image. Where a video will appear within the Course or showing the actual image that you uploaded rather than the file to be downloaded. Also see:
